Shepherding Sisters In The Church !
Reader, great discussion at The Front Porch. A pastor with an illicit sexual relation in his church ought to be as repulsive to us as a man sleeping with his sister. A church’s most important decision is who they call to be their leaders because pastors have room for great exploitation, particularly of women, or great effectiveness.

How should a church view a pastor who is having an illicit sexual relationship? What are signals of a pastor grooming a sister for abuse?
